Takeout Tuesdays: Lunchtime Conversations About Art

Portrait of the Artist
How is a portrait like a poem? Join docent Lydia Zane in a discussion of the eclectic cultural and artistic lineages that contribute to Portrait of the Artist, a collaboration between artist Shahzia Sikander and poet, playwright, and novelist Ayad Akhtar.

“Take out” a taste of art! Join museum docents and fellow art lovers for interactive lunchtime encounters with selected artworks from the collection. We’ll gather on Zoom to look closely at compelling works using high-resolution images and uncover fun facts. Each weekly session explores a different topic. Unmute to join the conversation.
